San Francisco – December 7, 2023 – Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco (Habitat Greater San Francisco) announced today it has received a $53,240 grant from Lowe’s to help complete a variety of important home preservation projects in San Francisco. The funding from Lowe’s is part of a larger two-year, $6 million donation to Habitat for Humanity International to support home repair and preservation efforts in owner-occupied homes.

With the support of this grant, Habitat Greater San Francisco will be conducting critical home repairs for long-time, low income homeowners in San Francisco. One such homeowner has lived in the Bay Area since the 1970s. Her aging San Francisco home was in need of substantial repairs. With the Lowe’s grant, the homebuilding nonprofit was able to improve her safety, health and accessibility in her home with a new roof, windows and siding. For long-time homeowners like these, critical home repairs through the Home Preservation program at Habitat Greater San Francisco help them remain safely in their homes and continue contributing to their communities.

“Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco is grateful for the opportunity to help make tangible, meaningful repairs for long-time Bay Area residents who have truly helped build the Bay Area. With the generous support of our partners, including Lowe’s, we’ll soon be working with even more of our long-term, local homeowners as we expand our Home Preservation program to residents of Marin County, Redwood City, and the Belle Haven neighborhood of Menlo Park,” said Maureen Sedonaen, Chief Executive Officer of Habitat for Humanity Greater San Francisco.

Through the partnership between Lowe’s and Habitat for Humanity International, more than 75 local Habitat affiliates will complete more than 480 projects this year to address critical health and safety issues in homes across the U.S. Since 2003, Lowe’s and Habitat have worked together to help more than 18,000 people build or improve a place to call home.
